A prolonged spell of wind and rain should finally end soon, with temperatures in parts of Kent due to hit 20C again this week.

Our county town of Maidstone is due for highs of 21C on Thursday (June 24).

But temperatures are still likely to be lower than average in the coming days, with more spells of rain predicted too.

In fact, most forecasters reckon sustained good weather and temperatures closer to the mid-20Cs isn't likely to arrive until the middle of next week.

It looks as though rain is possible throughout the morning, and temperatures aren't likely to go above 15C at any point.

The BBC's outlook for Maidstone

Slightly warmer temperatures and some sunshine is expected on Wednesday, with further improvements on Thursday.

But the BBC's weather service is predicting the rain to return again on Friday.

Having recently enjoyed some of the hottest days of the year, the mercury isn't expected to reach the mid-20Cs in Kent until Tuesday, when highs of 23C are predicted.

The good news is that from then on, more settled weather with warmer temperatures is expected.

The Met Office's long range forecast, covering the fortnight from this Saturday onward, also predicts an improvement.

It says: "Saturday will likely start cloudy in the south with outbreaks of light, patchy rain tending to brighten up through the day, however with a risk of heavy showers during the afternoon.

"Elsewhere will likely be dry with some sunny spells, light winds and temperatures mostly near normal.

"Then, predominantly dry weather is likely, but with briefly more unsettled spells of rain or showers for southern and eastern parts, alongside more prolonged rain for the northwest of the UK.

"Winds are most likely remaining light to moderate throughout, with temperatures at or slightly above average for the time of year."
